A special trip is being planned by One World Girl to better understand Female Empowerment and Understanding Islam in Morrocco this fall. Discover the unique beauty of this vibrant country and dive deep into the lives of women in culture and religion by exploring the capital city of Casablanca, wandering through the maze of colorful souqs and riads in Marrakech, understand traditional Moroccan life through a stay in a village, and take in breathtaking landscapes of the countryside.
Islam and the role of women are often misunderstood in media and politics, leading to polarization and fear. Join this female organization as it travels in Morocco to explore the roots of stereotypes as we take a look at these global issues as they are lived on-the-ground. Come have an once-in-a-lifetime global learning experience to deepen understanding, break down barriers, build bridges and transform hearts and minds. The trip runs from Nov. 7-13 and the cost is $2,300 plus airfare. Trip cost includes lodging, meals, local transportation, lectures, in-country trips, excursions and administrative fees.
This is a trip for women (ages 18 and up) with curious spirits who believe we can change the world through positive engagement, developing relationships and embracing cultural and religious differences. The trip is hosted by One World Girl and Rustic Pathways. One World Girl is a nonprofit committed to uniting women and girls to be changemakers in the world.
Registration is due May 1 and spaces are limited. For more information or to register, go to www.groups.rusticpathways.com/trips/owgmorocco or contact Lesley Mazzotta at email@example.com.
